When you are trying to sell a house, a quilt studio or craft room can look pretty messy to the normal person. My daughter and I spent several days converting the two rooms I use for quilting into decluttered rooms.
Quilt Studio room one
I actually forgot how big the rooms really were! I removed shelves, things on the design wall and closed up my sewing machine. I even hid the iron and my wool mat!
When I’m working it might look like this. I took this photo last winter I think. I probably rearrange my rooms once a month.
I meant to get the fabrics on the shelves all folded neatly but it didn’t happen. By time we got everything else done I was exhausted.
Quilt Studio room two
This is the other room all cleaned up and the cutting table removed for now. Everything came from Ikea. I sure wish I lived closer to a store and I already know we’ll be taking a trip to Ikea after we move.
I didn’t change anything about these bookcases. I love having my AccuQuilt dies so handy and will leave them here until we pack up.
I have to laugh when I found this photo, I think this was right after we moved in. I remember being frustrated at there wasn’t enough room…..or did I have too much stuff?
It took us half a day to bag up all the quilts on my shelves and then take down the shelves. It sure makes a difference having them gone.
The design wall that was in the hallway had to come down. I am really hoping I can have a sliding quilt design wall like I had at the river house in my new studio. Having shelves behind it to hold quilts was wonderful.
If you never got a chance to see my quilt studio at the river house, you will want to check it out. I really loved that large room.
Hopefully, we will get our house listed today. Wish us luck!
